Cash might be grungy, unfashionable and corruptible, but it is still a great public good, important for rich and poor alike

Cashless stores are already being tested by Gap, Inc. in a few of their west coast stores (where no cash is accepted). I find cashless terrifying and think it’ll destroy freedom.


To know that expenditure decisions (both big and petty) for billions of people are increasingly tied to your identity in a very dynamic way is quite a milestone in our society. While it feels like the dam is breaking and cash sticklers like me are just pushing back in a lost war, I also see a chance to amplify all those ideas people have been working on on distributed payment systems that are accepted by the corner store, digital, anonymous, and stable.

A place to discuss privacy and freedom in the digital world.

Privacy has become a very important issue in modern society, with companies and governments constantly abusing their power, more and more people are waking up to the importance of digital privacy.
